Next-gen PlayStation hardware details revealed

PS5 Audio Sony Play Station 1

PS5 Audio Sony Play Station 1

Backwards Compatible with at least PS4.

For those devs looking for a more technical breakdown, Cerny explained the next-gen box will feature an eight-core CPU based on the third generation of AMD's Ryzen Line, a custom-built Radeon Navi GPU that'll support ray tracing, and a custom unit for 3D audio that will apparently "redefine" game audio.

That faster loading also means an in-game camera can zip around Spider-Man's urban environments more quickly, without having to wait for the slow-loading hard drive.

So it begins: after months of rumors and speculation, the first details of the next-generation PlayStation console have finally come to light.

New Virtual Reality platform strongly hinted at but also supports current PSVR (meaning millions of VR users "day one").

Sony won't be at E3 in June this year and AMD's earnings release is scheduled for April 24, so it's probably not surprising that Sony chose to provide us with some details now. In test results shown to Wired, this one change lowered load times in a game like Spider-Man from 15 seconds on a standard PS4 Pro to 0.8 seconds on a dev kit for the new hardware.

Mark Cerny confirmed that the PS5 will not be released in 2019.

Games will continue to launch for the PS4 and PS5 after the new console launches. The description of a gentle transition indicates that the PS5 will be an iteration on the PS4, instead of being drastically different the way the PS3 was from its predecessor. If that sounds impressive, you haven't seen anything yet.

Devkit is with developers and they recently accelerated its deployment.

The system will support 8K TV's (but will likely run its games in 4K) and will still have physical media.

Be sure to visit our comprehensive guide to everything confirmed and rumored about the PS5 so far. We know that the company will be talking about its next-gen hardware at E3 this year and it would make sense for them to announce what's under the hood of Anaconda and Lockhart at that conference. Read the full report at Wired. Now we'll have to see how Microsoft responds. While we're excited to share more details about our next-generation console in the future, PlayStation fans have plenty of upcoming exclusives to look forward to on PS4, including Concrete Genie, Days Gone, Death Stranding, Dreams, Ghost of Tsushima, and The Last of Us Part II.
